Granby House is located in Melton-Mowbray, Leicester offering 28 studio flats (most with their own shower and bathroom) as retirement housing. The managed property scheme offers daily contact to its residents, which means that someone checks in on their well-being regularly. The establishment is also mobility and wheelchair standard which requires specialist flooring in many areas.
What we delivered:
We fitted Altro Aquarious specialist safety flooring to a number of communal showers and Altro Wood Safety to the corridors. In the communal lounge for social activities, we installed Heckmondwike Pure Care carpets that have a fully impervious backing and a tighter pile, making it an easy to clean and durable option.
The project lasted approximately for 6 weeks and we undertook all the prep work early in the morning to ensure that floors were ready and safe for when the residents left their homes. The building was a slightly unusual shape which meant that we had to implement our expertise and skill when we capped and coved the safety floors. We were also the first companies in the UK to fit Quantum’s new safety stair nosings, a quality product that is growing in popularity.
